UBC’s Master of Museum Education is a unique graduate degree program focusing on the study of education and learning that occurs in museums and other informal learning contexts (such as, art galleriesscience centresparkshistoric sites, etc.). This program draws together museum professionals, educators and those with an interest in using the community to support teaching and learning to further their thinking and scholarship around museums as sites of education and learning.

Program Start: September 2020
